Subject: Bobby on Walkin
Love the lyrics in the first verse. You can tell everybody was feelin it the entire song, just kinda chugging along. Theeeeen they overplayed the shit out of it.

Subject: Scarlet
Been listening to this board for 23 years for that solo in Scarlet. Punctual, long and articulate. It's all about Scarlet here. And the Let it Grow ain't bad either.

Of course, I'm partial to it....

Beautiful soundboard - first set is all Bobby, as Jer has trouble with a couple of tunes here and there lyrically. Dancin' is absolutely ***tight***, and all of Bob's tunes have something wonderful going for them - check that monster Let it Grow...

2nd set has it dialled completely in. Scarlet > Fire is, as you expect, an absolute wow, and you'll be totally grinning when this thing finishes. The previous night was probably the better-played show, but this one delivers for sheer emotion. ANYONE who doubts the integrity of '85 should put on this board, right here.

Brutal 1st set until Let It Grow, then you have to stomach Keep Your Day Job. 2nd set is nice. Merriweather is brutal unless you have a seat in the Pav.

My favorites are the two in 85.In my opinion special shows.The 1st set is solid,but the second set smokes.I remember being under the pavilion for the Scarlet>Fire {{WOW}} is all I can say.One of my favorite Dear Mr Fantasy ever!! and the double encore Satisfaction/Baby Blue
I left this show completely SATISFIED!!!!!!!One I will always remember
